At some point, practically everyone will take a look at their stomach or arms and realize they are no longer as slim and toned as they used to be. As we grow older, removing stubborn body fat often feels impossible no matter what you eat and how often you work out. Liposuction will allow you to permanently remove excess body fat, reinvent your appearance and rebuild your confidence.
When Diet and Exercise No Longer Seem to Work
Many people try to claim that weight loss is nothing more than the number of calories we eat and the number of calories we burn, but losing stubborn body fat isn’t quite so straightforward. There are countless internal and external variables that dictate how quickly an individual loses weight and where they lose weight. Even with thousands of crunches and countless hours of core training, eradicating fat throughout the midsection can take years of grueling work.
The primary benefit of liposuction is getting rid of body fat that does not seem to respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise. It is an unfortunate fact that spot training will not remove fat from specific areas of the body. The human body is designed to hold onto fat around the midsection for as long as possible as an emergency source of energy. Without liposuction, many people have to maintain a caloric deficit for one or more years before their body finally burns abdominal fat.
Another benefit of liposuction is the longevity of the results. The soft tissue is physically removed from the patient’s body, and this means they can maintain the results as long as they do not put on additional weight.
Good Candidates for Liposuction
Liposuction is a major surgery that should not be taken lightly. As such, the best candidates are in good overall health with no serious medical concerns. Good candidates also have realistic expectations regarding the results of the procedure. In addition, they understand and accept that there is a recovery process involved. During the first few days after the procedure, it is critical that you relax, stay hydrated and pay close attention to your body.
